Obama's Job Creation Plan

Updated on September 8, 2011

This is a re-election plan, not a job plan!

President Obama will give a speech tonight to unveil a job creation plan. The problem is, that he has already proven to us that he has no idea how to do anything close to creating new jobs. His plan will be more of the same tactics that never work. I am certain he will talk about paving roads (which will created very few dead end, and short term jobs), and extending unemployment benefits. We can argue about whether or not unemployment should be extended, but we all know that extending these benefits will not create jobs!

He blew over a trillion dollars and said"If we don't pass this "stimulus" bill, unemployment will go over 10%. If we do, it will not go over 8%". Well. Mr. 44th, unemployment did hit 10% and has stayed over 9% the entire time you have been in office! The non stimulus plan provided police departments with surveillance cameras, money for repairing parks, basketball courts,etc. That is NOT a stimulus package! No way! It has not helped unemployment either. I am no fan of John McCain's, but he at least had a plan to create jobs. He wanted America to start harvesting oil sand, oil shale, and allow the building of clean coal, gasification, and nuclear plants. You are talking about over a million new jobs and energy independence. Two things that would move our economy forward. Obama is thinking backwards!

He will most certainly insult and attack the G.O.P. Congressional Representatives, and blame the previous president, but I doubt he will offer an effective plan. I believe that this is a plan to get his numbers up, not to get Americans working again. What a shame that would be!

      I have to agree with you on this one:to get his numbers up not to get Americans back to work. We need to get all the bozos up there out of office and start anew in my opinion.

      You seem to be very confused. First of all, Obama has attacked the oil industry in many of his speeches. So how then does he get credit for those jobs you speak of. You act as though the job creation is a good thing but then you say "In texas some of the sweetest oil is being drilled at an alarming rate." Its either positive or alarming, not both. And yes the current president has been fighting the domestic production of energy. That is a fact.

      Apparently you all have a skewed view. In texas some of the sweetest oil is being drilled at an alarming rate. Baker Hughes building a large complex and hiring 520 to staff plus field workers. Haliburton almost ready to open its facility that was in construction for about 2 months. 2 other facilities opening. Projected production to last 7 to 9 years.
